I know that you guys want this. I have gotten asked about this before. I thought about starting something like this myself but hey, I got busy with all my other stuff. Anyways, it’s here because great minds think alike. And I’m so happy that a great mind did this! Olfactif is a monthly perfume subscription program that sends 3 niche or indie perfume samples to your door. Awesome, huh?
Here’s Weekly World Fumes for April 4th, 2013:
Armani paid Cate Blanchett $10 million USD to be the face of Armani fragrances or maybe it’s an Armani fragrance. Who cares?
Marc Jacobs will launch Honey with such notes of fruit punch, orange blossom, honeysuckle, honey and vanilla. The bottle is a very twee bee.
Weekly World Fumes: March 28th, 2013
It’s an Easter weekend miracle, I don’t have any celeb gossip!!!
Indie perfume line, D.S. & Durga, has paired up with the color-blocking abusing clothing retailer, J.Crew, to launch Homesteader’s Cologne. Homesteaders are the last thing I think about when I think of J.Crew. And it’s inspired by Big Sur containing notes of eucalyptus, sage brush and kelp.
While I was in NYC last week, I visited the Elements Showcase, a fragrance and beauty tradeshow held biannually. I apologize for the lack of pictures, but I’m an experiencer which doesn’t make me a great journalist. I get lost in sniffing and conversation and often forget to take pictures. When I did take pictures, they came out merely decent. Talk my husband into buying me a rad camera, OK.
2012 has been an insanely busy year for me. I’ve made some rather “big”, perhaps even drastic changes in my life and I’ve had a huge shift of priorities. This year has been a contemplative one for me. I’ve always said that half the problem with life is figuring out what you want. 2012 has been the year where I’ve realized what I want. 2013 is the year it happens.
